If we the American people continue to remain silent, subservient, accepting and condoning these actions that are so very damaging to this nation's stability, refusing to object and speak out against them when we should, then we must accept our full share of the responsibility for allowing them to continue unabated. And by the failure to stand up for what is right for America, we are all doing a great disservice to those who will follow us into the future. They deserve better, America deserves better.


You are what you do and how you act; you are what the world sees you doing. America can no longer continue to try to portray itself as that symbol of freedom, justice and morality while, at the same time, it is using its power and might to dominate this entire planet. That's pure hypocrisy, that's misrepresentation, that's living a lie.


Let's close with these reminders; what goes around comes around; you reap what you have sown; you will pay the price for your folly; and this slight alteration of a very familiar religious admonition: "For what does it profit a nation to gain the whole world, and forfeit its honor?"
